One of the most fundamental requirements of a civil society is the rule of law, which means that the people must comply with the law of the country regardless of their status or position in society. In the modern world, the developed countries feel proud that their society is governed by the rule of law, while most developing countries like India are ashamed of their society not having the rule of law. Developed countries are the model of the underdeveloped countries, where the rule of law is still a distant dream.
Societies that follow rule of law are often regarded as more civilized because there is much more order in society. Every thing in such societies seems to be in order. The roads are clean, lawns and parks are well maintained, officials work in the office, trains and public transport are on time. Furthermore, there is almost no corruption in public authorities. People are well paid, deliver better efficiency and keep everything neat and clean. These communities seem perfect for people in other parts of the world, who often wonder why they can not be like them.
All societies need laws for their existence. Although laws may differ in every society, there are some basic principles common to all the laws of the world. These basic principles are equality, fraternity, justice and freedom. For example, the Indian Constitution contains these goals in the preamble to the Constitution aimed at ensuring justice, freedom, equality and promoting the spirit of brotherhood for all its citizens.
These principles are so universal in nature that they find place in all civilized societies in the world. It is a great surprise that in reality the outcome of the rule of law is just the opposite. The more civilized a society is, the more is the inequality among its people - more unfair to them, no less freedom due to strict legal conditions and more hatred among citizens because of race, throw and religion. What is wrong with implementation in the so-called rule of law?
Indian thinkers in the Vedic period, ie about 3000 years before Christ's birth, discovered that the universe does not perform its tasks randomly, but follows certain laws. These were called Rita or universal laws or principles governing the universe. Human progress can largely be attributed to understanding these basic natural principles and exploiting them in favor of humanity at the expense of the rest of the creations. Human laws are therefore contrary to the laws of nature because they are human and not designed for all creations of God or Nature.
One of the fundamental differences between human beings and natural laws is that natural laws are spontaneous as they do not require any effort in the implementation. For example, in a natural part of the earth like a forest, the soil spontaneously produces trees, plants, fruits and vegetables without the need for watering or breeding. Nature itself provides early rain and fertilizer to the new plants. The woods and mountains are covered in greenery and beauty, which is pure natural because it comes without effort.
On the contrary, the artificial creations like parks, trees, plants are artificial. They can also look as beautiful as the natural ones, but they can not survive without regular efforts from the human side. Imagine a park, which is not maintained for a few months, or a house that is not cleaned for several months. It will lose all its beauty and soon be filled with dust and weeds. No building or modern gadget can survive without external efforts from man. But all natural creations can survive on their own and maintain their existence; and enjoy their lives without any external support.
Natural laws are just as they treat every species (and not just man) with equality. In a jungle, each species gets its share of food, air and water that allows them to live a worthy life without being dependent on any other creation. Nature does not differ between a species, and the other as all species are the same children of God.
But in human world, all other beings are killed if it is not useful to man. They can survive only if they can be useful to humans. The world of human beings thus treats no nature of nature with respect, giving them no right to equality, freedom, justice or brotherhood. He uses this universal team smartly and only applies to people. For all other smaller species, he has created artificial laws, which call it the jungle layer or the survival of the fittest who motivate their dominance over the weak creations. In fact, the jungle layers are much fairer and equal to all species than human rights.
Most men are not worried about how they treat the smaller animals because they believe that the survival of the hottest theory is more logical than nature's laws. But they forget that every principle created in the universe must be applied to them too, and that they are not always recipients.
